Types of Motorbike Accident Claims We Handle
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reported that in 2015, there were 4,976 motorcyclists killed on U.S. roadways, an increase of eight percent from the previous year. Additionally, an estimated 88,000 motorcyclists were injured in accidents in 2015, according to the NHTSA. Motorbike accidents can occur due to various factors, including:
- Driver error
- Driver negligence
- Driver recklessness
- Poorly maintained roadways
- Manufacturing and design defects
Unfortunately, motorcycle accidents can often be attributed to the negligence or recklessness of other parties. If this applies to your case, you and your family may be eligible to seek compensation for the damages you have suffered.
Understanding Negligence in Motorbike Accident Cases in Florida
In Florida, negligence cases involving motorbike accidents follow what is known as a pure comparative fault rule. This rule ensures that even if the victim is found partially at fault for the accident, they can still recover compensation for their injuries from the other parties involved. The total award for damages will be reduced proportionally based on the percentage of fault assigned to the victim. The remaining amount will be paid by the other parties to the victim.
At Garrity Traina, we have been representing accident victims for over 25 years and understand the traumatic impact a motorbike accident can have on victims and their families. Accidents can take a toll physically, mentally, and financially. That’s why we are here to ensure our clients receive the necessary compensation to cover expenses such as medical care, lost wages, pain and suffering, property damage, and wrongful death.
